... here is the game: you describe a menial job that you have done in your life by using hyper-overinflated descriptions and self-important titles. - the rest of us will try and guess what it translates to.

now that everyone understands the game, there is no need for the less than subtle personal attack to remain- lets play nice(r) people. Attack the argument, not the person. Cord.


I'll go first...with an example (answer provided):


"My incredible experience, that you people could only dream of: I was a natural consumption preparation specialist, with hours of logged time on-the-job mentorship in an aggressive real-time environment and position with high visability. "


actual job: I worked in the produce section of a large IGA food store chain when I was 16: I wrapped lettuce and stacked it in pyramids. The level of cognative ability required was somewhere between snow monkey and humming bird.


ok, go....

Great thread, Ed!

At one point, I was a broadcast information engineer for a large print-media company. The job included managing stock and delivery, customer interface (including advertising/marketing) and collections.

I was also an environmental abatement engineer for a large visual entertainment corporation. Responsibilities including managing solid and liquid waste and air quality. Other duties included civil gathering/dispersal mangement policies, and accounts payable.

See if you can guess what they really were.

Although I think the obvious personal attack that this thread is to be somewhat disputable, it sounds like it's gonna be so much fun I can't find it in me to deny myself the pleasure of jumping in... I'll see what I can come up with.

Cleaning the toilet in an MGM theatre?
In which case I'd assume the "air quality" responsibility to consist in planting some air-freshening devices?
Besides, working in a theatre can clearly involve some "civil gathering/dispersal management"...

I was the COO of a company that engaged in sustaining environmental resources by utilizing state-of-the-art botanical management equipment and pioneered ecologically-friendly waste management and disposal in a moderately populated suburban environment. My company was never cited for misuse of natural resources or pollution. The first year, my net profit was 8,000% of the initial investment placing my company firmly at the top of the S and P.

What did I do?

Damn! I was close, but no cigar this time.

OK, time to give it try myself:

I used to be a French chef and cellarman in the greatest restaurant in town. My achievements in that establishment earned me several awards and prizes, among which the much coveted three stars. People came to that restaurant from all over Europe. I was even honoured to once have a man coming from a remote country to shoot a documentary on my work. That restaurant is still of international reputation to this day.

Now there's some serious claim-inflating going on here!

Tashigae -

Correct!
Except that wasn't in China but in England. Here are the details of the claim-inflating process:

- In terms of mere size, the Donnie's where I worked was bigger than any other restaurant in Southport, hence the "greatest restaurant in town".
- I would often be asked to run the chicken section on my own (since it was usually less busy than the beef section), which would make me my own "chef". My nationality makes that a "French chef".
- Another of the responsibilities I was most often assigned to was to put the right drink in the drive-thru orders, hence the "cellarman".
- It takes only two awards to make it "several": I was once employee of the month, that's one. As for the "three stars", they of course have no connection with the stars used to rate French restaurants: A McDonald's employee's badge has five slots to put stars (one for 'awsome burger-maker', one for 'extreme speed', 'extreme cleanliness', etc.). Earned 3 out of five. Talk about an achievement!
- As most crappy jobs, McDonald's is a major immigrant-worker magnet. I worked with a Pole, a Czech, a Latvian and two Lithuanians. Therefore, people came indeed to that restaurant "from all Europe". Just not to eat in it.
-One of my Lithuanian fellow-workers once asked me if he could record me doing my magic tricks. That's how "a man coming from a remote country" came to "shoot a documentary on my work", the which "work" had no connection with McDonald's.
(was asked a few times by my boss to entertain the customers, though...)
- "That restaurant is still of international reputation to this day." Now who's to deny that!

wow..you guys have taken this exercise to new levels. let me course-shift this a bit to an artform I like to call: "Interpretive Martial Claimage" aka...BS Detection.

our first case study:
http://www.kempokarate.com/founder/index.cfm
Quote:

The life of Christopher N. Geary encompasses many amazing achievements. He was the first to bring the art of Kempo/Kenpo to Omaha. He was teaching by age 23 and by age 27 his success as an instructor, martial artist and businessman helped him begin to create a network of independently owned and operated martial arts schools. Geary is part of a lineage that dates back to the Japanese Samurai and the monks of the Shaolin Temple in China (525 A.D.)

"Geary is a great martial artist and technician," Hanshi Angel says, "He has a good mind for business and is devoted to the students and the furthering of martial arts."





Claim: "The life of Christopher N. Geary encompasses many amazing achievements."
Interp: 10th dan at 35 years old, would certainly make it to the top of the list in the 'amazing' category.

Claim: "He was the first to bring the art of Kempo/Kenpo to Omaha."
Interp: via mail-order.

Claim: "He was teaching by age 23 and by age 27 his success as an instructor, martial artist and businessman helped him begin to create a network of independently owned and operated martial arts schools. "
Interp: He was groomed young to start his own mcdojo franchise.

Claim: "Geary is part of a lineage that dates back to the Japanese Samurai and the monks of the Shaolin Temple in China (525 A.D.)"
Interp: A lineage path that traces thru the financial banking system to a World Sokeship Council to someone able to laserprint and fill in words '10th dan' with a pen. (2006 A.D.)

Depends what you meant to come close to...

Not bad at all, actually.

The French for "mother" is just "mère", that "mater" of yours is really Latin. A Frenchman should be able to understand it though. The Donnies' in which I worked was a British one, not a French one, but since you asked... As stated by Tarentino, the quarterpounder isn't called so in France because my countrymen wouldn't have a clue about what that means. Strangely enough they didn't translate it as a "125-grammer": the French call it a "royal cheese'" instead (yes, with "cheese" in English ). For some obscure grammatical reasons, we don't need the "with". I guess Tarentino added it so it wouldn't sound so strange in English. The next sentence is nearly flawless (except "reservoir" is spelt in French exactly as in English: no need for that extra E). As for the last one, the true French translation for "tasty" would "goûteux", but that's a highly uncommon word in French, you'd sound posh as they come if you were to say "c'est un burger goûteux".
"Delicieux" would be more like it.

Go raibh mah-agat(am I close? ) for your attention.

(PS: your post is no longer this thread's last one.;) )

ah, 'mere', of course. I knew it wasn't 'mater'. Still, I may be happy with myself not having studied la belle langue for about 28 years.

Maybe the reason Tarantino says "Royale with Cheese is bcause it was in Amsterdam, not France.

Thanks for the Gaelic (in exchange for the Gallic), although I don't know the correct reply.

Are those "non-hybrid ungulates" perissodactyls? From your background I should guess you take care of horses...

Otherwise I would have to go with other ungulates whose "byproduct" is even more "sought-after" for its high nitrate ratio, such as pigs or even cows...

I worked for one of the many subsidiaries of the US Department of Agriculture. I was a natural fibers loss control manager. I also had an international crew working along side me.
